Sustainable Communities Initiative
Cooperation Jackson
Jackson, Mississippi
Cooperation Jackson has purchased vacant lots, abandoned homes and commercial facilities in the West Jackson neighborhood surrounding our central hub at the Balagoon Center. These properties and prospective properties are currently owned by the State of Mississippi, the City of Jackson, and private owners. Cooperation Jackson stewards land into a Community Land Trust so they are removed from the speculative market and dedicated for sustainable communal endeavors whether it be housing, playgrounds or corner stores.  More about this project >
